It looks like the Spielberg and DiCaprio finally found the right project to reunite for as the two are teaming up once again for a Ulysses S. Grant biopic, Deadline reports. This would be the first time they will work together since 2002’s “Catch Me If You Can.”

DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson will produce at Lionsgate while “Robin Hood” writer David James Kelly will pen the script.

DiCaprio’s will next be seen in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” which is about the Manson Family murders.

Spielberg is certainly inspired by the Civil War. The last time he tackled the era was in 2012, which resulted in twelve Academy Award nominations and a trophy for start Daniel Day-Lewis.

The acclaimed director is currently riding high with the success of the film adaptation of “Ready Player One” which has so far made more than $570 million worldwide since its release on March 29. He is currently working on the fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise and plans to direct a remake of “West Side Story.”

He is also said to be attached to DC Comics film “Blackhawk,” also from Warner Bros.. Given all these projects orbiting Spielberg, it it would be interesting to see when production will actually commence.
